Songfacts®:

  • The Any Man in America album chronicles the dissolution of vocalist Justin Furstenfeld's marriage and separation from his daughter. The singer explained: "I decided to document everything. If I messed up along the way, I'd tell that too. I called the album my 'Audio Journal' as I was writing. I didn't want the music to just be about me though. I wanted it to help other fathers in America who might be going through the same thing."
  • A video for this song directed by Merritt Fields was posted by Blue October on June 9, 2011 on YouTube. Due to the overwhelming positive response to the clip by fans, the band released the song on iTunes five days later just in time for Father's Day.
